I learnt how to make lampwork buttons in class on tuesday, and wanted to share my happiness at how quick they are to make and how regular the shape and size is to achieve.

I posted a photo on my Facebook page and a friend already wants these for a cardigan she's knitting! So I suppose I'll have to go and make more now  Grin

This is one I've not seen before, glass buttons. I like them and seem like they would be addicting. Smiley

Thanks!

I've made buttons from small pieces of fused glass with a plastic shank glued to the back. But they were sort of bulky and it was difficult to get them all the same size.

This technique is much easier - and now I'm off to make some more  Cheesy
